0 Reviews
This guide to the legal aspects of AIDS has been thoroughly revised. Written by experienced legal professionals under the auspices of Britain's major AIDS charity, it addresses areas of the law affected by AIDS, including: insurance, housing, employment, children and young people, and immigration. It examines all the legal needs of people with AIDS and HIV infection. The book includes a section on the medico-legal aspects of AIDS (such as antibody testing and the subject of informed consent) and a chapter on the legal and practical steps towards setting up a voluntary or charitable organization. Concise and accessible, this guide should be useful to counsellors, health and social workers, lawyers, welfare agency advisors and anyone who needs a legal rights guide to AIDS.
